  • Chemical Components Of Anacin And Tylenol, Using Thin Layer Chromatography Technique

    1100 Words  | 5 Pages

    Abstract The goal of this experiment was to find out active chemical components in Anacin and Tylenol, using Thin Layer Chromatography technique. This technique uses the difference in the intermolecular forcer and polarity to separate mixtures. Comparing Rf values were then used to determine the active chemical components in the two analgesics. The overall result was that Acetaminophen exists in Tylenol and Acetylsalicylic Acid exists in Anacin. Introduction The main goal of this lab was to determine
